Nomad’s Guide to South Island, New Zealand

New Zealand had been on my bucket list since quite some time now. Having heard about the wonders of the place and its people from animate and inanimate sources, I was quite eager to set foot there. My fascination for this adventure-filled destination finally drew me to this corner of the planet last January. I went there to spend a month on the roads of the New Zealand’s South Island or Aotearoa’s Te Wai Pounamu, as the original Maori would say. Undisputedly, it was the best month ever.

Whether you are a nature lover or an adrenaline junkie or just looking to chill and party, the south island is the place to be.

Here are some of the highlights of my trip in Oceania’s southern-most country, and experiences that made it unforgettable

To The Shire Then!


  1. A place I have yet to make it to. I so look forward to going to one day though, especially for views like that! (:

  2. I’m a New Zealander and I don’t think there is a more magical place on earth!

  3. never really had a huge desire to travel there, but seems pretty awesome! 🙂

    Manan you have really stoked my fire again – that might sound rashly inappropriate but you know what I mean 😛
    lovely pictures too…

  5. I was so close (when in Australia)… but never made it here. Maybe one day. Thanks for linking up to #SundayTraveler again.

  6. This country is just very beautiful ! Its the best place I have been to until now in my life
    It is just heaven on earth! 🙂 🙂

  7. New Zealand is just so amazing. I feel like I would need a whole year to explore the country properly.

    • NZ certainly is magnificent Adelina! I met many people in New Zealand who were living there for over a year on a working holiday visa, working for 3-4 days of the week and travelling for the rest. Seemed like the best way to see New Zealand for a prolonged time and on an economical budget.

  8. New Zealand is always been my fascination….I will definitely visit there to the land of wonders..
